How To Make A Monthly Milestone Blanket

I used the Cricut EasyPress to make this baby milestone blanket and it was so super easy to do! 

Using the EasyPress 2 made it easy to place everything and then press without the hassle of having to move your material around and ending up readjusting your pieces.

The 9×9 Press gave me more of the heated plate so I could press a larger area at a time.

I love the mobility of the EasyPress when making things like this milestone blanket. My small 6 by 7 EasyPress makes things like onesies and bibs a breeze.

So if you haven’t checked them you, you definitely should look into it for all your Heat Press needs. Especially if you don’t have the room for a traditional heat press. These are the answer.

The beauty of a project like this is you can personalize it however you want, put trucks or baseballs for a little boy, or make it gender-neutral by adding a favorite character to it, the possibilities are endless..

Our baby shower is shades of purple, we are doing a royalty theme, I plan on doing some Giant Paper Flowers also.

The whole time I was planning this project I had an image in my head of how I wanted this baby milestone blanket to look. I totally exceeded my own expectations here.

Most of the design for my baby milestone blanket was created using design space and the Cricut Access fonts. I used images from Adobe Stock, totally worth the cost if you do a lot of custom design. I edited the images in Adobe Illustrator.

The ring is just 2 pieces of chipboard that I hot glued together and then pressed a piece of iron-on vinyl to them.

It was kind of hard to get the vinyl to stick on the baby month blanket, but I was able to work it out so you couldn’t see the flaws because I also added paper roses to it.

This milestone blanket is the perfect size for a new baby up to 1-year-old. And an EasyPress 2 is the perfect way to customize all the little things you want to make.

Doesn’t that sound super simple!? Because it is. I can see so many projects that I want to try with the easy press.

Can you put vinyl on fleece blankets?

You can use flat heat transfer vinyl, but it may look a bit bumpy with the fleece underneath. That’s why I stick to materials with texture. Test the fabric first before you press to make sure that it holds up to high temperatures without discoloring or melting

How do I cover my newborn at night?

Put your baby in a base layer like a one-piece sleeper, and skip the socks, hats or other accessories. Instead of a blanket, use a sleep sack or swaddle. She’ll be warm enough — but not too warm

Hi I love this blanket!! Thinking about making one for my friend. I am interested in the flowers. They are printed on printable HTV? Any tips on how to make them look as crisp and clear as yours do? Where did you get the flower image from?

Print quality is about the computer you use. Great printers provide great quality prints.
